if you want to have a really good look at something
[the latest honda say] brain will co-opt legs to
walk around it, allowing eyes to capture
photons bouncing off it, thus giving you
a better range of imagery..
a better look at it..
similarly, in understanding braking forces, traction
while leaning and so on, its always good to
give brain plenty of input.. be it suck it and see
or measure it and know what else is happening..
as a real analogy, heart patients who research heart disease
and so on, when controlled for all other factors, have
better outcomes - measured in heart attacks and deaths -
than similar heart patients without, input of knowledge..
point being, brain is involved in all bodily functions and actions
[including riding motorcycles] and can and does make use of
any relevant knowledge about [whatever] which translates
to better performance capabilities..
this is not limited to intellectual processing or surface thinking,
but is nevertheless part of normal brain function, and thus
potential general and specific body functioning..
ie, all knowledge, regardless, is good and beneficial..
